  1. Looks like you have a very nice list of books – The Color Purple is the only one that I have heard of, though I haven't read it. Hope that you enjoy it and are able to recover with some light reading!

  2. That cover for Linger is so intriguing and I see so many people reading it that I'd like to check it out soon. Have a great week!

  3. I love the variety of books you read. I liked Linger and can't wait to read Forever. I have only read one book by Bill Bryson but found it interesting enough to add a second to my TBR mountain. My Monday Report is here. Have a great week!

  4. I love Bill Bryson, and I haven't read the one you are reading. I will have to check it out. The Percy Jackson series is a fun series I think.

  5. I loved The Color Purple, but it's been many years since I read it…or saw the movie.

    Hope you enjoy it.


  6. I like de Lint's books but the one Newford book I tried I couldn't finish. Until Sunday I had only finished four books, a fifth of what I was reading during spring semester. Then two things conspired to make me read more. Come see what happened.

  7. I really should read some more Mark Twain, my familiarity with his work is limited to what I read in school many years ago. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

    My Monday post is here.

  8. Looks like you are mixing up your genres. Don't you just love variety? I commented on a couple of your reviews.
    Enjoy your reading!

  9. I'm definitely interested in reading The Color Purple – but am a bit intimidated by it. I'll get to it soon, I hope =)

    Here is my Monday!

  10. Enjoy The Color Purple it is such an excellent book. Have a wonderful week.
